Better Bus Stops

Take care of your community – Adopt-A-Stop!

Metro Transit employees volunteer to pick up trash as part of the Adopt A Stop program.

Adopt-A-Stop is a program that helps businesses, individuals, community organizations and schools make a real difference in their neighborhoods by "adopting" local transit stops.

Metro Transit employees make regular visits to shelters (in some cases, daily) to make sure that they are clean and damage-free. An adopter assists us by joining us in this work and alerting us to special maintenance needs and reporting vandalism or suspicious activity.

Any Metro Transit stop within the seven-county metro area is "adoptable." This includes bus stops with and without a shelter, bus rapid transit stations, light rail stations, Northstar stations, transit centers, and Park & Rides. 

Benefits of Adopting-A-Stop

When you or your group adopts a stop, you’ll help us keep area bus stops, shelters, and stations safe and clean. Your community will see you or your organization as a "good neighbor" and appreciate the work that you do to improve the Transit system! 

We also help promote you or your organization! At each adopted stop, we install a sign with the adopter’s name, group name, or a short slogan (you can opt-out of the sign). This is a great way to put your name out into your community, and several of our current adopters promote their small businesses and nonprofit organizations in this way. 

As an extra thank you, you’ll receive 10 free rides for every month you adopt a stop.
